Survivor: Blood vs. Water - 10/9/13

Wow! That was one crazy tribal council! Good for Caleb. I can't wait to see John and Candice's reaction when Culpepper gets to Redemption Island.

Am I correct in assuming that a second tied vote would have resulted in the dreaded purple rock tiebreaker?

Loved it, I'm sure Redemption Island will welcome him warmly as the residents there think he is number one!

Not sure on a not final tribal about the rocks ... probably though, it's been a while.

That was a fun TC. Culpepper's mouth is his worst enemy.

I hope John & Candice can get him out next week.

RI should be a good one next week.

I am note sure I understand the love one's strategy anymore. Before I could see sending in John to limit the natural alliances that will happen at the merge and minimize the number of upset returners but now it is basically now the love ones, particularly Vytas, believing they can make it to the merge and used their blood's alliance on the other side to keep them in post merge.

One thing has bothered me about the clue to the hidden immunity idol. The person that wins the Redemption Island challenge can give the clue to whoever they want in the form of a scroll. How can the same clue be valuable to both tribes, when the geography surrounding each camp is completely different? It's not as if the idol can be hidden in the exact same spot at both camps. Are we to assume that the scroll is just for show, and the appropriate clue is then given to them off camera? Perhaps I'm over thinking it.

Anyone else find it amusing the comment from Candice that Monica was following Brad's orders right after she herself ordered John to give Monica the clue?

Culpepper has a reputation down here in Tampa for being a crappy lawyer too! By the way did anybody notice his wife's tattoo tonight??? What is it of?

I didn't notice this time, but last time Jeff waited until the person was chosen, then he reached in his pocket to get the scroll. My guess there are multiple scrolls with different clues depending on the person/tribe.

Yeah, I just went back and watched it. For some reason I thought Jeff handed John the scroll, but that was not the case. You don't even see the scroll until after John has made his decision. It was edited out, but clearly Jeff grabbed the appropriate scroll after the fact.

Knowing how they like to rig stuff, I wouldn't be surprised if they come up with a challenge that plays to Culpepper's strengths. He has a big personality, and the producers like to see people like that go far in the game.

Great episode. I loved the guys going behind the camps back and and drinking the coconuts. That is both wrong and right on so many levels.

Yes. Maybe that's why things were so hot. Two Alphas. Females that is.

Given how well John did on that challenge at RI, I wonder why he was not part of the first puzzle challenge (that cierra and the other girl lost). Also, no doubt in my mind that he would have helped his tribe win had Cierra been the one voted out at the last tribal.

Very harsh thing for Cierra's mom to say about her daughter (something along the lines of "she can never beat me at anything", implying that her daughter just doesn't measure up to her awesomeness).

I got a kick out of Hayden starting to write "Cierra" then scratching it out and thinking. Then he ended up writing "Cierra" anyway.

Maybe he was thinking of the right way to spell it

Everyone except the 2 who are tied draws rocks and one of them goes home. That's a pretty good incentive to not have a 2nd tie vote.

I used to like Candice but she's too whiny for my taste. I hope Culpepper takes them both out. They are too schmoopie.

Culpepper and his followers made a stupid decision when they blindsided John. When your team is already down in numbers, the last thing you want to do is vote off the strength.

I thought the exact same thing. I can't imagine Ciera was very pleased to hear that last night. In fact, she was probably downright humiliated by it. Not a very motherly thing to say at all.

Yep, that's how it would have played out. Here's a quote from Jeff Probst:

Quote:
We do the vote and we have a tie. When we have a tie, we do one re-vote and the rules are that if nobody changes their vote and we remain tied, then the two people tied are now immune (yes, immune) and the rest of the tribe must draw rocks to see who goes home. The person who draws the odd rock is out.

Are we to assume that the events that went down at tribal last night are what Jeff was referring to in the Time article? He mentioned that something crazy was going to happen this season.

I told my wife the same thing last night. Though I used "bitchy" instead of whiny.

I'm sure it does not matter how each person voted, only that the result of the vote was a second tie.

They were at least once. In season 18 (which I'm watching now) both idols are hidden in the treemail statue.
